A young 14 month old male leopard (Panthera pardus) lolls lazily less than 2m from our game drive vehicle. His mother has just returned from a hunting expedition to find that her energetic son had been out and about himself and had brought down his own supper.
One of the real priviledges of visiting the Sabie Sands reserve is the number of totally wild but equally relaxed leopard that don’t seem to have any issue with sharing their space with game drive vehicles. This makes the reserve a mecca for viewing these typically elusive and hard to find cats.
